Bio
I have been involved with a variety of different urban farming/guerrilla gardening projects, first in Minneapolis and then in Philadelphia.

In 2013, I co-founded the Experimental Farm Network, with Nathan Kleinman.

Just finished up (fall, 2017) my fourth year farming at our EFN flagship farm in Elmer, NJ. Over the years we have trialed hundreds of different plant varieties and heirlooms, all grown for seed. We also have been propagating a variety of perennials. We started a small seed selling operation as well, which is linked to from this site.

In some cases, the projects I organize on here will be on behalf of other experienced breeders, and I will simply serve as the facilitator/mailer of seeds.

I am a proponent of bioregionalism.

Favorite Crops & Least Favorite Crops
My passion is for plants and crops that produce more calories. Starch is life.

I also like things that are easier to grow. For example I prefer winter squash to carrots. In South Jersey I have loved growing okra.
